good fit but needs more booty support
I like the length - short and flattering. Fabric is thicker so no see thru but the back seam gives me a wedgie. I have run in these 2x on fairly long runs. They do ride up a little and I found myself tugging at them. I am not sure if they are too big (I have had to pull the drawstsring super tight) or too small - hence the wedgies. Overall a good short but not the best I've had from Oiselle. A few years ago I bought a 2-3 inch inseam short with a softer but more compressive fabric. They don't have a pocket but they are my favorites and I can't remember what they are called! Bring those back please!

Stylish but ride up
Love the aero tights, but the shorts ride up badly. I tried these in the course of my never-ending search to find a suitable Oiselle replacement for the Stride shorts, which were perfect and never rode up; unfortunately, these rode up a ton immediately after I started running (even though they're very stylish otherwise). Bring back the Stride shorts!

The first product from Oiselle I didn't love. These shorts are weirdly thick, but not compression tight, the seams are very large and protruding in all the wrong places, maybe I got a defective pair, but no run shorts should have inseams this large and be comfortable. These chafed and rubbed. Good pocket and good length, but they ride up and they're just not comfortable.
- They were cute, with a good sized pocket.
- They're incredibly uncomfortable.
My New Favorite Shorts!
Where do I begin? I love the fabric and the waist band which is flattering (not too high, not too low) and stretchy. The length of the inseam is perfect for me! Also they're definitely true to size.
I still had to apply sports shield to prevent chafing because your thighs *will* touch in these shorts. I tested them on a 13 mile run though and had no issues. Luckily I remained chafe free and now I want these in ALL the colors.
